Well I had hoped for an increase of traffic and comments to this blog, and it happened. It wasn't as much as I hoped, but more is more!

Before we get to the winner, I wanted to share an attempt at making some vintage cards. This really isn't my forte, but I have had stamps for over 5 years that I have never used and wanted to give it a go. I also bought a new stamp set recently that has vintage style stamps.

I'm sending this one to a friend who loves to cycle.
When I saw this sentiment I knew this image had to go with it.
This is so cute, but I am nervous about the white space. My son said, "leave it as it is!"
And finally this one, I change the colours to black and cream, then muted the cream with some ink. This one is for a challenge over at Mojo Monday. I had another sentiment in mind, but I can't seem to find it! The typewriter stamp is from the set I bought over 5 years ago.
You may have noticed the background paper is printed paper. The Last time I was at BizzyB, my local scrapbook store, they were offering free books to craft with. So I figured I should use it.

Now for the winner of the stamp set:
